In designing and outfitting WOOD Magazine's Idea Shop with a cyclone dust collector, we had several objectives in mind. We wanted a space-efficient unit with minimal noise, dust-free construction, and convenience of use.To meet those objectives we designed a unit using a 760 CFM, 1 1/2" horsepower, 62-82 decibel dust collector. This size blower is more than adequate for a small shop.We built the entire wood framework from one 4x8 sheet of 3/4" birch plywood. In addition the project requires:One piece of 20x57-1/2" 30-gauge sheet metal for the cylinder Another measuring 20x57-1/2" for the 3 cone segments A third measuring 15-1/2x19" for the inlet. We used a cartridge-type air-filter (rated 99.9% efficient) to minimize dust emission.The total cost of our unit was right around $375 (including the blower) to build.Add another $64 for the remote switch.The dust collector we built is for a collector with a 760 CFM, 1.5 horsepower blower.In the plan, we've included general information, but NOT the drawings or dimensions for using different blower sizes (1-3 H.P.), allowing you a CFM range from 350 to 1200. This plan was built and proven in the WOOD magazine shop by its editors and master craftsmen.This is a paper plan.
